Miyachi also showcased the UB25 linear DC welder, which provides unsurpassed levels of control for micro-miniature resistance welding. The UB25 is ideal for smaller applications where closed-loop feedback control and fast response times are required. Safety-critical applications, such as those found in the medical markets, will benefit from UB25’s precision low energy control.
Representing the latest technology in resistance weld monitoring, Miyachi’s Advanced Data Analysis Monitor (ADAM) was also on display. ADAM not only monitors what happens during the weld, but also what happens before the weld is triggered, offering a 360-degree view of the process. Sophisticated SPC capabilities such as the integrated database and Minitab 15 statistical software enable customers to analyze and collect data. Other key features include current, voltage, power, resistance, force, and cover gas flow monitoring; high resolution sensors; pre-and post-trigger viewing; envelope limits; and Ethernet communications capability. ADAM offers information to support ISO, GMP, and TQM requirements.
